ATTLEBORO, MA – MJSA Press’s latest title, “Jewelry Metals: A Guide to Working with Common Alloys,” recently earned a bronze medal in the Book/Manual/Catalogue category of the Association TRENDS 2015 All-Media Contest. The contest, held annually to recognize the most creative and effective communications developed by associations over the prior year, received 400 entries in 22 categories.

Published in March of 2015, the 150-page “Jewelry Metals” offers practical insights into all aspects of working with precious and non-precious jewelry metals. It includes advice for easier casting and bench work, tips for managing scrap metal, international marking and stamping regulations, and illustrated step-by-step instruction on a range of metalworking techniques, including mokumé gane, granulation, chasing, and anticlastic raising. Jim Binnion, a recognized master of mokumé gane and owner of James Binnion Metal Arts in Bellingham, Washington, served as technical editor.

Along with the other winners, MJSA will be honored at the 37th Annual Salute to Association Excellence, to be held March 4 in Washington, DC.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
